Still not feeling it.

I still haven't taken any photos. My camera is packed in my suitcase still. I've thought about my 365 every night for the past four nights as I climb into bed, but I'm just not feeling it yet.

When I set out to do this project I had very high aims of not missing a single day and seeing it through to completion. I'm standing firm at photo number 276. Less than 100 left. Originally, my full circle would have ended about a week before Christmas. As it is now I'll be into the new year before I'm finished.

Not really sure what happened in Ireland to make me stop taking photos there; I was mostly just pretty distracted I guess. Since arriving back in Washington I've been busy non-stop with packing and unpacking and moving and organizing. My 365 is important to me, but not living out of boxes is a more pressing matter.

At the rate I've been going I should be completely unpacked and settled by the end of the week. I know I'll definitely have photos from this coming Saturday, it's Elijah's 3rd birthday! At least I know that the latest I'll be starting again is then. That's nice.

On Friday I ordered test prints from a printing service that I've been reading about. They should arrive in the mail today and I'm really excited. I'm closer and closer to having my etsy shop up and running! I have it 'open' but I have nothing for sale. I've been going through my photos and deciding which ones I want to offer for sale and I also have a large list of ideas of photos to take to help with my shop.

Exciting!

I just remembered that I need to backup my hard drive to my other external. If I lost all of my Ireland photos I honestly think I would die.

I may take a break from moving and packing today to put up Halloween decorations. I would like to be festive as hell for the next three months.

Festive as hell... there's a certain ring to that.
